Ricciarelli di Siena are cookies made of almonds, sugar and egg whites that are usually given as Christmas gifts along with cantucci, another typical Tuscan specialty.

This year instead of buying them I’m going to make ricciarelli along with the other 780,000 kinds of cookies I decided to make during the holidays. Luckily Christmas only comes once a year. If you love these cookies, you absolutely have to try this recipe, it is great, try it and you will agree with me, I salute you and have a good day.
